Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

This is the view taken from Devil's Bridge at Kirkby Lonsdale.

It is called Devil's Bridge because, legend holds that the Devil appeared to an old woman, promising to build a bridge in exchange for the first soul to cross over it. When the bridge was finished, the woman threw bread over the bridge and her dog chased after it, thereby outwitting the Devil.

Although very calm and tranquil when we were there, on hot summer's days it is a site where people gather to jump into the cool water.

The two tiny figures will give you some idea of the scale. I will, also add an Internet link here which shows a day when people were using this venue as a diving board!

It is also THE gathering place for bikers. On Sundays, parking spaces next to the bridge are reserved strictly for motorbikes. I will add a w/s here with a view of a couple of these bikers.

Sunday is a great day to visit Kirkby Lonsdale!!

Thank you for stopping by. I wish you a great day, Bev :-)
